End of Roaming Charges

On June 15th, 2017, a significant milestone was achieved for the European Union, heralding a new era of connectivity for its citizens. Roaming charges, once a costly concern for many, were officially abolished within the EU.

For travellers from outside the EU, there are convenient solutions to bypass hefty roaming charges. One such option is Bouygues Telecom’s offering – “My European SIM”, which is designed to cater to non-European visitors, ensuring you can enjoy uninterrupted connectivity while exploring the continent.
